Alex Flores, CFI

ORC Investigator East Coast
Abercrombie & Fitch

Why did you become a Certified Forensic Interviewer (CFI)?

I received a scholarship from my company, Abercrombie & Fitch, to take the CFI exam. However, I was planning on paying for the certification myself as I wanted to learn more about conducting interviews.

What was the most difficult challenge you came across while preparing for the CFI exam?

I am not a native English speaker, so there were some expressions that were a little difficult for me to understand. But I got through it just fine.

Do you use social media? If so, which ones?

Yes I do, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.

What are you passionate about?

I love travelling, seeing new places and enjoying the food.

Who do you most admire? Who is your favorite person? Why?

My brother-in-law J, because he has overcome great difficulties in his life in a way that I don’t know I would have been capable of if it was me.

If you could trade places for a day with anyone, who would it be?

Anthony Bourdain

If you were stranded on a desert island, what 3 things would you bring?

A survival instruction book, a multi-tool knife, and a first aid kit.

What’s your favorite movie?

Broken Flowers, Jim Jarmusch
